6:03 am
from tyson's corn are at the staples there. -- this whole black friday thing just fascinates me. everybody is in a rush to get in there. the arguments about parking space. and some are also a little bit sleepy i'm assuming after all that turkey yesterday. everybody inside the staples now. let's head over to traffic land. we had an accident in frederick, 355 northbound lanes near the entrance to the francis scott key mall. that has cleared. 270, no problems for you out of frederick in toward the beltway. you should be running pretty smoothly. no accidents are incidents reported. beltway look good in maryland and virginia. 395, 95, no problems for you. hov restrictions are in effect.

metro on a regular schedule today. marc is closed. vre on a holiday schedule. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic. a shooting at a hospital parking lot. this happened late last night at the university of illinois chicago medical center. one woman was shot. we have no word on her condition. police say the shooter is her ex-boyfriend. they are still searching for him. at last word, the hospital was still on lockdown. closer to home, violence on one d.c. streets that authorities investigating a shooting and stabbing. d.c. police say a man was shot in the 1300 block of columbia road northwest around 1 charleston 25 this morning. they say of his a robbery victim. then about 40 minutes late are, a man was fond stabbed in the 1700 block of columbia road. no word tonight or this morning for the two crimes are related. you know, plenty of people spend today shopping and by
6:05 am
this hour, some intrepid shoppers may have wrapped things up already. >> i'm still trying to get over the video we just saw. at tyson's corn are, things got kicked off at midnight. let's go to sherry ly who is right in the middle of everything. have you seep that video yet? >> reporter: no, i haven't. talk about insane. call people here crazy but i tell you, what you are right here when the store opens at midnight, get the best of all the deals. and a lot of the people would were here, they have packed their bag into their cars, this home sleeping it all off right now. the full opening time was midnight but they did open the doors a few minutes early because there were so many people here. and this year, you really have a lot of savvy shoppers. take a look at some of the apps that are out there right now. there are all kind of apps that will map out all of the best deals and the ads this year and then allow you to sort of map out which stores you are going to go to. who has the best prices and all those great things.
6:06 am
it you take a look at the mall out here, you can see there are plenty of shoppers. we are told there were 15,000 to 20,000 people waiting at midnight outside tyson's corn are center this -- corner cent they -- center this morning to get in the door. some people sitting down having a little breakfast and coffee getting their second wind. for a lot of people this year, it is all about finding the right bargain. despite the economy and everything that is going o they are expecting sales to increase a little bit this year but people are really looking for that good deal. >> they're progressive conservatival shoppers. they know what they want. they know where they're going to get it. they also know the experience they want to have when they're shopping for it. you combine all that and our retails are have really figured out a way to accommodate them and do what they ask for. and this is a very
6:07 am
important day for retailers. they don't call it black friday for nothing. this is traditionally the day when stores start to turn a profit going from the red into the black. but interestingly enough, experts say, despite the deals out there for black friday, this is not necessarily the best time to get the best price. a lot of the items on black friday tend to be small are appliances, lower end items at good prices but if you want some of those higher end items, what the experts say, it is the week right after thanksgiving when you get the best deals there and then try not to shop just before christmas because a lot of the price for toys and things shoot right back up because they know the shop everys that are last minute are desperate to get what they can find. so that is the latest here at tysons corner. back to you. >> all right. be controlling on cyber monday. thank you. >> we'll be right back. stay with us.

6:34 am
pennsylvania avenue. nice trip right now. no problems to report crossing the wilson bridge as you head into virginia. taking a look at traffic land. 66, no real complaints for you. 95, nice trip all the way up here past the fairfax county parkway in towards springfield through the mixing bowl. 395 all looks good from the beltway up across the 14th street bridge. keep in mind, the hov restrictions enter effect today. metro is also running on a regular schedule. no marc. vre is on a holiday schedule. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic. back to you. >> thank you. a frenzied tradition is in full swing this morning. we are talking about black friday shopping, of course and many big box shores really pushed up that you are opening times this year. while the reason on's major malls used midnight to kick off the unofficial start of the shopping season. >> serriely is at tysons
6:35 am
corner. are things picking up or easing off a little bit. >> it is easel off but we are six and a half hours into the shopping here at tysons corner center f it wasn't for this little thing called work, might be doing a little shopping myself. problemy the busiest place is starbucks over here. people are getting their coffee trying to revive themselves or back up for they are just getting here because a lot of people came out here at midnight. some of them have gone home and now others are just getting started. it has been jam packed here at tysons corner center all morning long. they opened up at midnight. and about 15 to 20,000 people we're told were waiting outside to get in. they actually opened the doors up just a little bit early because they had so many people out there waiting. and this year, we understand that about 8% of people according to national retail federation -- or a survey by. bay, about 8% of people are expected to spend a little bit more this year.
6:36 am
60% will spend about the same. so a lot of people are out here shopping looking for the good deals and this year, macy's at tyson corner center also opened at midnight for the first time. a lot of people had to make sure they didn't get run over. >> we had people running into the store -- many of the younger customers don't always shop normally and they didn't know where things were necessarily. there was a lot of anxiousness to find where the demeanor was to get their buy. >> ann taylor lost is one of my favorites. they give 50% off on everything in the store. it was just wonderful. abercrombie and fitch, levis, all 50 to 40% off. really amazing. >> now, some people love black friday and some people hate it and sometimes it doesn't bring out the best in all of us. a survey by e-bay.com found that 96% of people dread some
6:37 am
parts of the holiday shopping son and some admit to grinch like behavior. 4% said they would park in a handicapped spot even though they're not. some might even take an item from someone else's shopping cart. 3% of people fessed up to do that. another 3% said they have physically or verbally fought with someone over appear item in the store. another 4% admitted some mean manners. i think the percentages were a little bit small. but when you are trying to go after the good deal, sometimes it can get a little hairy. everybody out here so far as i've seep, they are being more nice than naughty. that is the latest here. back to you. >> when i heard that woman you talked with say 50% off, then i start to realize, okay, maybe i got to get it now. that is a lot. that is a good savings. >> thank you. it will begin to look a lot like christmas at the white house starting today. first lady michelle obama will
6:38 am
be presented with the official white house christmas tree. the first lady traditionally steps out on the north portico where the tree is brought up. it comes from wisconsin this year. you can be treated to some amazing holiday displays. tonight, national harbor kicks off its harbor lights fifty valentine with a tree lighting and fork at 8:00 p.m. old town alexandria will light its giant christmas industry and in market square at 7:00 tonight. those fifty its include a special holiday performance, community caroling and a visit from old st. nick, santa. now, it is time to get serious. redskins taking on the seahawks. what is the chance we'll be celebrating? i don't know. seattle i don't think is a very good football team but the redskin have not proven to be a very good football team as well. when you are in the midst of a
6:39 am
six-game slide like the redskins are, just one win would feel so much better. it is a grind not just for them but for the media. you feel bad every week kind of hey, what is it going to happen. >> then they have to talk to you all afterwards. >> they don't like that. if they win, they get mondays off. they haven't had a victory monday in seven weeks. we like it because we don't have to go out there. so we're all rooting for the redskin to get a win this weekend. this is hope because santana moss should be back. he is their number one wide receiver. i don't think this is ironic. since he got hurt right here, his left hand, they haven't won since this game. that began the six-game slide. he has been back at practice. >> do you think that was it? >> i don't think it was just that. thats with the first thing that happened and the domino effect. but having him back at their top wide out could help out rex grossman this week. we talked to moss all week. this is what he had to say
6:40 am
about his prospects for playing on sunday. >> i don't want you all to be oh, 89 is back. i just want to take it day by day. i don't like to get my hopes up too high so i didn't want you all to be going crazy. like i said before, i had to let them see me catch balls and see me go through a practice before i know anything further. we can just progress day to day. >> yesterday after practice, he said i'm fine, to go. i'll be there. this was the fox game. this is ndamukong suh for detroit. he will drive the head of evan dietrich smith and the kick, the foot stomp. that got him kicked out of the game. he might get suspended. we'll talk about that in a minute. this was aaron rogers going up top to james jones. the packers still undefeated. the ndamukong suh play, he was
6:41 am
a borderline player. he plays on the edge. he went over the end and he crossed the line. you don't stomp on anybody. the by star thing is he came out after the game and said i didn't do it. >> like that wasn't caught on camera. jeersly? i didn't do it. >> let's roll -- seriously? i didn't do it. >> let's roll back the video. >> i think they'll be having a little chat. as we go to break, a look at today's my fox half off deal it is from cotton's candy land. for$125, can you host a sweet celebration for your child's next birthday. that is pretty cool. that is actually a $250 value. to get in on this, go to myfoxdc.com. look for my fox half off on the right side of the page. >> just what i need, more sweets. back in a moment.
